Marguerite Blanche was a Danish actress notable for her starring roles in British silent films. She was born in Copenhagen as Margaret Jessen, but emigrated to Britain where she made twelve films for director-producers such as Cecil Hepworth and Sidney Morgan. Her final film was Morgan's The Woman of the Iron Bracelets in 1920.[1] Morgan then replaced her as the star of his films with his own daughter Joan Morgan.
